Huawei Mate Xs users are now able to install the 220.127.116.11 firmware update which comes with a decent 4.73 GB size. The basis of the firmware remains Android 10 (AOS) for the Mate Xs. So the current knowledge remains that Android 11 is apparently only reserved for the new models with EMUI 12, such as the nova 9 or the P50 Pro.
